Treatment of ‘pure glandular’ gynecomastia
‘Pure glandular’ gynecomastia (puffy nipples) can usually be treated by direct tissue excision alone. This type of treatment does not involve fatty tissue excess or significant skin excess. The glandular breast tissue proliferation is located immediately behind the nipple and areola and is removed through an incision placed at the inferior border of the areola. The incision can be limited, in most cases, from about the 4 o’clock to the 8 o’clock position of the areola. The color difference between areolar skin and chest skin conceals this type of incision quite nicely for most patients.
Male Breast Reduction Cost
As noted by many other surgeons on this site, the cost of gynecomastia surgery varies depending on the extent of the condition as well as the location. In my practice, the cost for most patients is approximately $6500, which includes all fees (surgeon, hospital, anesthesia and pathology). It is slightly higher if skin removal is required. Insurance rarely covers the procedure, which is considered cosmetic by most insurance carriers.
Male Breast Reduction costs $5000 - 10000
Correction of gynecomastia can be an insurance-covered benefit and this is the appropriate place to start. Gynecomastia can be caused by medications, weight, marijuana use, or (in rare cases) tumors that effect your hormonal balance.
Gynecomastia correction surgery is different than breast reduction surgery for women. The end goals are different in that breast reduction surgery aims to create a smaller attractive looking breast that has projection, roundness and appropriate horizontal positioning of the nipple in comparison to the breast fold and breast mound.
Gynecomastia correction aims to create a male-looking breast with significant improvement in the skin envelope and subcutaneous breast tissue.
Typically costs are between $5000-$10000 depending on the techniques used (liposuction, direct excision, combinations of both).
I hope this helps.

Male breast reduction cost can vary depending on if there is a need for excision of any skin or just liposuction with removal of the glandular tissue by direct excision.
For liposuction with direct excision of the glandular tissue, costs are $4500 for everything at Hedden Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, Alabama. This includes facility, anesthesia and surgeons fees.
If there is some laxity to the tissue and the patient wishes to have smart liposuction with the excision the cost is $1000 more for the added laser cost.
